The manner in which the actress and DJ reacted to the dating rumours, did not quiet sit well with social media users. Many thought Thuli insinuated that Master KG is not her type as she said, "Please respect me."

The dating rumours all started when Thuli commented on Master KG's Tweet where he asked if it is acceptable for men to date older women. "Is it a bad thing for always falling for people older than you as A Guy?" asked Master KG, to which Thuli responded by saying, "Bathong nana, of course!" she said.

By just commenting on that post, tweeps started making assumptions but she quickly poured cold water to those rumours.

"Apparently, I’m dating MasterKG because I commented on his tweet! Guys, please respect me!" she laughed. She also tried to not make it seem as though she was being disrespectful to him and said he is just a friend, "I love
@MasterKGsa but we’re friends, stop it! Stop it lona!"

It's the "respect me please" which ruffled people's feathers. She then clarified what she meant by that, "I mean ‘respect me’ as in stop spending baseless rumours! Hayibo nina, angisadlali! (I'm not playing anymore.)

The DJ had once spoken about how she has been very unlucky when it comes to finding Mr. Right, especially in South Africa. Thuli said although she is hopeful that something might change in the future, she is not holding her breath.

Taking to Instagram to vent, Thuli revealed that she is happy and that she is spiritually aligned and is fulfilled by her family as well as career. But there is that aspect of her life which is missing, saying no man in South Africa can fulfill it.

"The happiness and peace I'm experiencing right now! My life journey is heading towards my desired direction. I'm so spiritually aligned. My loved ones fulfill me. My work is in order. I'm gradually dealing with mishaps with a sense of calmness. I'm genuinely enjoying life. Grateful!

"In terms of love, I don't think I'll win in S.A unless a miracle happens but ke angifuni shame. Ha ke batle, immediately no," she said.
